Each passing day has us anticipating a letter, an email, or a phone call from the embassy. Our case was approved to be expedited on June 23, 2015. Since then, we have heard nothing.
Our oldest son, Noah, has to start school on August 24, 2015, in the United States. We really desire to travel as a family and it should be that way. I am not one who worries about tons, but each passing day has me more nervous. Per suggestion, from someone who works in immigration in the United States, our agents contacted their congressman today.
A message had to be left with the congressman, who quickly responded, and I had to give them written permission to reveal any information to the agents. Our agent had called us to tell us this and I opened my email to see the email had just arrived. I quickly sent back all the information needed. The congressman let me know that the U.S. Embassy of Argentina, has had our information since July 1, 2015. We knew they already had it, because the National Visa Center (NVC) has given us this information the few times we have called them since June 23, 2015. They have suggested we call them to schedule an appointment, as soon as possible. That makes it sound so easy and I hope it is, but truthfully, nothing has been easy with this process.
We tried to call the other day, and the number stated on the website, was no longer working or would not connect. I called another number, but it was only for tourist visas and we need the one for an immigration visa. I hope and pray the number the NVC has given me, will work tomorrow. We sent an email off on Monday, July 6, 2015, asking about our interview date and how we still lack the DS-260 (due to technical errors), but have not had a response. I know they were closed today for Argentina’s Independence Day and the embassy also celebrate the United States holidays, as well as of the country they are in. The congressman did let me know that he sent an email to the embassy.
Please pray I am able to get some information from the embassy tomorrow. It would put some ease in our minds and help us have a date in mind for when we will be able to leave, hopefully, as a family. Thank you!
